4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Svart farge med brunt høyt skum. Aroma av kirsebær, mørk sjokolade, eddik. Smaker syrlig(vinaktig). Godt karbonert. Spesiell smaksammensetninger ift det syrlige og samtidig sjokolade/kaffesmak. Morsomt å smake en såpass annerledes øl.. God!!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks troubles. 2011 bottle. Black with a beautiful brown head. Pleasant sour aroma with a bit of vinegar, cherries, other fruits, some funk, a hint of olives and vinous notes. Sour roasty flavor with some fruits, a bit of vinegar, coffee notes, some funk and some bitterness in the finish. Medium to full-bodied. Very nice. I thought this was intentionally sour, but now I see some of the ratings don’t mention any sourness or funk, so I guess it’s not supposed to be that way - I really liked it anyway.
